Oranjestad

— 4 nights
When vacationing on Aruba, don't miss taking a tour of Oranjestad, the capital of the small Caribbean island.
Change things up with these side-trips from Oranjestad: San Nicolas (Baby Beach & Cosecha in San Nicolas). There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Eagle Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Arashi Beach, steep yourself in history at Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins, and stop by Kay's Fine Jewelry.

For where to stay, maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Oranjestad trip planner.

Bogota, Colombia to Oranjestad is an approximately 6-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Colombia Standard Time (COT) to Atlantic Standard Time (AST) is 1 hour. When traveling from Bogota in February, plan for somewhat warmer days and much hotter nights in Oranjestad: temperatures range from 36°C by day to 28°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.

Happy Island
A Dutch outpost in the Caribbean, sun-drenched Aruba provides a mix of modern seaside resorts and quiet coastal areas ideal for those wishing to escape the crowds. Vacations in Aruba, known affectionately as the "Happy Island," generally combine water-based activities with tours of the untamed backcountry, where you can discover unusual rock formations, historic churches, ostrich farms, and animal sanctuaries. Island capital Oranjestad offers some of the finest shopping and cultural sightseeing in Aruba, with an eco-friendly electric streetcar providing quick access to all of the city's major attractions, including numerous shops, restaurants, and hotels.
